About

96

Hold your horses, this is one spectacular Vin Santo that explodes with intensity and authenticity. The Fèlsina 2008 Vin Santo del Chianti Classico is a true work of art, and I recommend that you sit back to savor every single special sip of this traditional sweet wine from Tuscany. The bouquet offers thick layers of candied fruit, apricot, honey, brown sugar and maple syrup. It is sweet, but in a delicate way. It provides enough tangy fruit, freshness, spice and toasted nut to magically appear less sweet than it actually is. Smoke, camphor ash and dried mint appear on the extra long finish.
